Tonight's the night

Blackpool's own Lady Gaga will be  taking to the stage tonight to raise money for the Happy House and another great charity, the Fylde Coast's Trinity Hospice.
Singer and dancer, Lisa Jones, whose stage name is Alisha, has spent two years perfecting her tribute to the  global singing sensation.
Lisa started singing  and dancing as a child to entertain her family, but started singing professionally whilst living in Tenerife some years ago and after returning to Blackpool was well known on the northern clubs circuit  as one half of duo, Expoze, with the other, her former partner, Noel Shields.
 "I got fed up  after while and took a break but would still always get up at karaoke and that's how Lady Gaga came about. This will be my first full one-hour show, with four or five costume  changes. they are very much a part of it.
"And with every costume there's a wig, you have to change the look completely to capture the real Lady Gaga."
Appearing on tonight's bill with Alisha will be George Michael tribute, Mark Jay, plus a full line-up of supporting acts.
There will be a dj and  some grea raffle prizes .
The gig, at the Merrie England Bar, North Pier,  starts at 7.30pm and admission is £6.
